No I am a mechanic at Audi. The problem is that the the air flow to the central tappets may be causing the air flow sensor to trip and that is why. Try putting a small amount of WD40 into the petrol and that will work, its a very common problem.

I think on top of the transmission, the one has a wire, and looks like a sensor. To remove, need a 19mm , open wrench or socket wrench.

I'm having a similar problem with my '05 A4 Multitronic with 75,000 miles on clock. PRNDS lights are all blocked out but not flashing (which I believe is worse). Car is driving ok after I had the EGR valve replaced by dealer at cost of £454. Dealer quoted me a further £1,077 to fit new gearbox ECU. Found a few websites that claim to be able to repair the ECU, best one seems to be www.BBA-Reman.com who quoted £169 +VAT + carriage. You do however need someone to take off and fit repaired ECU, had quotes ranging from £150 - £250 + £60 for 6L of new gearbox oil. However, I have been told by 3 independent garages that specialise in Audi's, BMW's & Merc's etc that they cannot be fixed, so I'm a little sceptical. To summarise the cheapest quote I've had for a new ECU fully fitted is from a garage on Tyneside (where I live) called Swift Motors 0191-2140056 who said they'd be able to do the lot for £860. Only bought car in February, absolutely love it, but sick as f**k at this unexpected cost which I can't afford. Had to take payment holiday from mortgage to cover the costs. Should have stuck with my old Ford Focus!! If anyone can offer any other tips I'd like to hear.

do you have an english translation for DPF ? i can tell you that your car is based on the passat platform(8E) ,a 2006 model(06)and made in Ingolstatd(A).043657 is the chassis #..the paper plate stuck to the boot floor has all the trim codes (blocks of 3 letters)and also the service ragime code.(SG 3/4)
